Our +300/500 Hour Teacher Training Program is offered as an advanced study course, with a deeper set of skills and insights to bring into your teaching practice, and essential to your ongoing development as a professional yoga teacher. The "advanced" quality of the +300/500 hour training is not so-called advanced asanas, but rather we focus on developing an advanced understanding of how to effectively teach asasa, pranayama and meditation practices to all levels and conditions of students. This program asks for your full commitment to being on the path of the teacher, starting with staying in your own personal practice and teaching in an active way. Once completed, you will be eligible to apply to the Yoga Alliance at the RYT 500 level and will be able to facilitate (lead) or Co-Teach our RYT 200 Teacher Training Program under our curriculum with continued guidance and support, should this be something we include/consider in your program - this is where you'll get to fill in the blanks.... as we encourage you to create your own signature components to the program, reflective of your specific philosophy and teaching style.
All of your program training sessions are conducted in both a semi private setting and group setting at our studio location, with weekly webcam conferencing when necessary. Webcam sessions are typically conducted in a one-on-one or small group type setting, and are scheduled around all parties time/days of availability for convenience. Our program allows you to go at your own pace with a full year to complete the program (including any make-up sessions or temporary training delays). Group sessions are run in accordance to and in conjunction with our on-going RYT 200 programming.
We offer enrollment into our teacher training program twice a year - Spring/Summer & Winter/Fall, and a copy of your 200 hour certificate of completion must be received with your application and/or prior to registration, before you can be accepted. Your completed registration form and deposit or payment in full will secure your spot.
We are proud to say that our teacher training programs are accredited and registered by the Yoga Alliance, the organization responsible for maintaining the integrity and consistency of yoga teacher trainings throughout the world. Yoga Alliance only accepts and registers a school when its yoga teacher training program meets clear, and predetermined criteria, such as ours.
